When we arrived, we were excited because we had heard the food was great. It wasn't great. It was average, EXCEPT for the she-crab soup! That was the only thing that was fantastic. The grouper had a lot of bones, and the BBQ sandwich didn't have the bacon on it, and so we had to wait 20 minutes for the... More

They have quite the array of different sea foods, especially local catches right off the gulf of Mexico. I love visiting this place as they have a great story, great atmosphere, and great food! Also, they have an online camera that shows the Gulf 24/7. So even if you're if not in the area, you can still have the incredible... More

Found this place kind by accident as we were sheltering from a storm and it was opposite us. Very friendly staff who helped us through the menu and served up some very good food at reasonable prices. Try and leave room for desserts in here there magic !!

You can taste the freshness of the ingredients. Friendly, quick service. Crab cake was amazing. My friend was raving over the mussels.

We arrived by boat Sunday afternoon with our neighbors and made our way to the bar. There was a little wait so we ordered rum runners at the bar. They were the worst run runners we've had. When you're paying $8 a drink, the least they could do is make it fresh. Instead it was a pre-made drink poured over... More

French'y's Saltwater is close to most of the hotels in the Sand Key area and sits in a strip mall right on the inland waterway. It is a highly touted restaurant and so is always quite busy thus a reservation, especially if you want to sit outside is a must. Their seafood choices are great and the quality of the... More

I love this place! Every time we come to Clearwater Beach it's a must! Their peanut butter pie is a gift from heaven. We usually go for their plethora appetizers (usually stick to the ones with a fish by the name) and my boys have a sirloin burger or kids menu (10 & 4). Enjoy!
